The Drummers of Frank Zappa

I stumbled on this video a few weeks ago, but since this is Zappa's birthday, it seemed especially appropriate to post it.

And here's just the performances.....

A few takeaways.

The group drumming excerpts are wonderful, very musical.
It's great to see the love and respect all the people on the panel have for each other.
Sadly, it sounds like Ruth Underwood doesn't play anymore. I guess when one is challenged by a musical visionary like Zappa, it's probably hard to go back to regular gigs.
